Relationships ~ Can a bad Marriage Age you?
If a couple have spent about 5 to 10 years in an unhappy relationship together, could it make them look much older than their age, or would it just be emotionally taxing?
Any kind of stress contributes to aging...The biochemical reason is that under stress, a lot more free radicals that damage the cell membranes, not only on the skin, but everywhere in your body, is produced. So reducing stress wherever it comes from is good not only for your looks but for your whole being.
According to my friend in Japan, a Zen Master, one looks more beautiful when one is happy so a happy marriage contributes to the overall well being of a person.
Yes. Absolutely. It can age you physically, mentally and emotionally. It can cause many sleepless nights and much stress.
I would think so........
You only have to look at the face across from yours, and ponder..................an easy life or a troubled one..........All manner of circumstances will show themselves in a lifetime.
Though, we can not look at a particular wrinkle and think " bad marriage", or hard childhood, or even, troubled childbirth..................we can know if life has been hard or with eases... For most people, marriage is a great part of life......it is the springboard of our adult promises and disappointments.
Even, children of a hard childhood, do not have wrinkles.
"spinisters" sometimes do..............it is TIME , worry, and self neglect, that wrinkle us. Marriage can add to it.....so can the absence of empty promises and desires.
Absoulutely whether it's a bad relationship with a mate, a boss, or anyone you feel an obligation to engage with frequently. Toxic relationships are unhealthy period. It's important to always remember that life is a personal journey. You may not be able to control another person but you do have the ability to control whether or not spend time with them. Oftentimes the reason why people (choose) to stay in bad relationships is because they lack the courage to change. However the truth is; When we change our circumstances change. Thankfully there are more than 7 billion people on the planet. All of us have options! :-)
Stress is the factor of aging as we will have more wrinkles and turning grey. Worst effect will be on health as stress will break down your immune system in a way that it will be perform at its best when needed.
It absolutely can and will; stress will do that to people. That said, you can reclaim yourself and ease yourself back out of stress and back into looking and feeling good again!
Absolutely, yes. The body can do fine with an occasional stress in life but chronic stress can cause numerous diseases and it certainly will age you. Your body doesn't know the difference between perceived stress and real stress, so the effects are the same. These include high blood pressure, suppression of the immune system, increased risk of heart attack or stroke and it speeds of the aging process.
doctors say that stress can age you , cause poor health and other things to happen so i would say yes to your question.
I think unhapiness in general can age you, so a bad marriage can also. I remember a few years ago I saw a documentary on a study on Twins and there were these 50 year old women (twins), one of which had a happy marriage and the other an unhappy marriage, that actually ended in divorce, and mentally, physically she seemed 5 or 10 years older than her twin... So, there you go, there was no other significant differences between the two, except that bit of information, so...
Only if you allow it.
Human beings are inherently endowed with a thinking mind to choose and decide on the quality of life he is going to lead. Sad to say though, that most people choose to think according to what everybody thinks and then believe that he is original in those thoughts...
"It is easier to follow (to be in the bandwagon) than to really THINK.
I think it does. My beau and I were just talking about a couple we know pretty well. They are truly hating each other and have been married since high school. The lady's looks began going downhill shortly after they married but over the last couple of years it seems like the guy is really aging quickly with dark circles, wrinkles, and bags under the eyes. He works and the wife stays at home overeating, nagging via text and phone, and watching soap operas and wrestling while doing nothing with her life. The guy is fed up but seems to be too afraid to divorce her and get on with his life. She doesn't even want him to exercise so he's gained a lot of weight just like her. Every time she sees him exercising, she angrily asks "who are you trying to look good for?"
I would say yes because any type of stress ages you and to be in a bad marriage would be extremely stressful.
The key to your question keep a healthy diet,and a good workout daily.
I believe anything that makes you stress will make you look older. When you are unhappy it is unhealthy. So yes an unhealthy marriage can age you.
Absolutely. If you allow it too. And sometimes your body unconsciously reacts to the stress of an unhappy situation which can make you physically ill.
Right at this time I know a young woman who is in such a situation. It is a messy divorce that is on going, dragging on and on. She has aged so much in the last year. She has deep wrinkles etched in her face where before there were none. She looks ten years older now..no exaggeration.
